Welcome to a New School Year

Dear Families,

On behalf of the entire staff at Dunsmuir Elementary School, welcome to the new school year!  I hope you enjoyed the summer break, and are ready to return to the business of learning. Our dedicated staff has been working hard to prepare for another amazing school year, building on the success and accomplishments of last year.


At Dunsmuir Elementary School, it is our job to “ensure learning for all…no limits, no excuses”.  As your Superintendent/Principal, I want to make a few promises to you:

1.  You will have dedicated teachers/staff that care about you.  They will take the time to get to know you and the positive relationship that they establish with you will make this year (and every year) at Dunsmuir Elementary School unforgettable.


2.  Your teachers will work hard to deliver effective instruction to make sure you learn what you need to learn.  They will prepare you to be successful this year and when it comes time to move on to high school, you will be ready.


3.  You will have whatever additional time and support that you need.  At Dunsmuir Elementary School, we believe that every student can learn and we will do whatever it takes to help each of you do just that.


4.  Dunsmuir Elementary School will be a safe, clean, and friendly environment where you can learn.  The staff will model what it is like to treat others with respect and we will expect everyone to be safe, respectful, and responsible.


We are here to help you learn and we look forward to working with each of you to make Dunsmuir Elementary School the best that it can be!

Go Wildcats!
